RAD.js 2.0 by MobiDev: Making One App For All Platforms Has Never Been Easier
RAD.js 2.0 by MobiDev – one of the most exclusive toolkits for cross-platform development has received a major update. Its exclusiveness lies in the combination of three factors: one, it's free; two, it's highly useful in case you are planning to create a cross-platform app; three, it's powerful enough to help you speed up your apps and speed up the development process itself.
Making one app for all platforms can become a perfect solution for your business; it's quite easy to find it out with a correct approach. Without a description of your particular project it's impossible to say for sure; but there are certain industries and software types where the multiplatform has proved its cost-effective nature: online shop apps, where backend (the server side, not the app itself) overtakes all the heavy logic and data processing; apps that present services and products of various brands; portals, blogs, forums, and suchlike; media-related apps that offer plenty of content of different types (video, audio, image); and generally any apps that require non-standard approach to designing the interface.
But besides the visual part, it's important to maintain high usability and performance of the software. If it's loved by end users, it's popular and profitable. This is where RAD.js steps in – it helps developers make apps that fully satisfy users' needs, that are intuitive and responsive. And now with the second version it's as powerful as ever. Let's list the most significant changes.
- The core of RAD.js was rewritten in order to make a toolkit out of a framework. It was hard work, but the results are worth it: now the toolkit consists of independent modules with CommonJS interface.
- Basic view classes for popups were reworked. Now there's no need in using special classes.
- Command line interface was added.
- Examples were restyled with all the necessary alterations.
- Crossbrowser events were renamed, accordant with the specification.
- Transition animations were reworked (and a number of them was added) to ensure better performance on mobile devices with low specs and smaller screen resolutions.
- Several negligible bugs weren't neglected. We always care for the quality of every product we create.
Our post-release plans for further improvements include adding drag-n-drop and infinite scroll, as well as a tutorial. RAD.js 2.0 is now launched free of charge for all interested developers. And we'll keep on using it to make powerful high-end multiplatform software for our Clients.
